Default Re: Glass Rods ?

I'm getting the itch to try some older "vintage" glass rods as well. Rip has given me some good info so far, thanks!

I am simply in research mode and have been checking the auctions to a sense of price.

One thing I've noticed is that most every rod I've looked at has a butt-over-tip ferrule. Was this the standard or is it only in the cheaper, read low quality, rods? Some have metal ferrules but not all, I assume if going with a butt-over-tip that metal ferrules would be preferred.

Thanks for the info.
